Maximise your sun protection at work

Maralyn Kastel - Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Australia will see sunscreens labelled SPF 50+ on our shelves very soon – but don’t get too excited and think you can remain in the sun for longer.   SPF 50+ is only a one percent improvement from an SPF 30+ rating in blocking harmful rays. SPF 30+ guards against 96.7 percent of UVA rays, SPF50+ only moves up to 98%.

The Cancer Council recommends that new 50+ still needs to be applied just as generously, reapplied every two hours, and used in conjunction with protective sunglasses and shade.  .Make sure you discuss sun protection in your regular safety meetings and toolbox talks.
